Default best full modular psu?

i just want to upgrade my hx1000 to something better and suitable to my customize case...

to be honest... nothing is wrong with my hx1000... it is just too big for my small size customize case... and want full modular like xfx black edition (god long to type)

ProSeries 750W PSU

XFX Pro 750W Black Edition Single Rail Full Modular 12V 70A 24PIN ATX PSU 80+ Gold Cert very nice price... 110...

so what do you think of this psu... i hope 750watts is enough to support my watercooling + 6x fans + hd 6950 cfx + etc (see my signature)

or you could recommend me to take 850watts but its 150+ from xfx or corsair...


edit:
Minimum PSU Wattage: 650 W
Recommended PSU Wattage: 700W

hmm maybe i should go with 850 watts

The AX850 is a great choice along with the AX860 if you want 80 Plus Platinum certification The Silverstone Evolution 850W is also in that list of fully modular units.

Seasonic X 850 W most juice that will fit in my Prodigy. Short cables though don't think they would fit a larger cases. 160 mm long oh ya.

I've been LOVING my hx750. It is fully modular except the 8 pin and 24 pin connectors (which you NEED anyway, so it really doesn't matter) It has a 90% efficiency rating, but is closer to 92-93 in RW performance. I do love it to death, especially after my OCZ fatal1ty 750w bit the dust

I hav a XFX 850watt and it is nice ,it is semi-modlar but the one it has to the power supply is going to be used any way.all the modular ones are the SATA and the extra PCIe connecters and the 4-pin power connecters.But it is silver rated and the guts of it are made by seasonic.It is quiet and gets great rateings.
